FOOM was Marvel Comics' self-produced fan magazine of the mid-1970s, following the canceled Marvelmania and preceding Marvel Age. Running 22 quarterly issues, it was designed and edited by celebrated comic book writer-artist Jim Steranko. FOOM, though spelled without periods in both indicia and cover treatments, is an acronym for "Friends of Ol' Marvel"; the name is unrelated to either the computer software acronym FOOM, or Australia's annual Songwriters and Lyricists Association Festival of Original Music Song Competition. It was relaunched in September 2017. Steranko, in his first-issue introduction, wrote that he had "dropped in at the Marvel bullpen to rap with Stan Lee about the current comic scene", that Lee told him about plans to start an in-house fan club. EC Comics had had its "EC Fan-Addict" club in the 1950s, Marvel the Merry Marvel Marching Society beginning 1964. Steranko, writing that he nostalgically "recalled the days of radio, with all the clubs and super-premiums that were perpetually offered over the air", volunteered "my services as a designer and comic historian".

Ken Bruzenak served as associate editor, with Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas as consulting editor and Ed Noonchester, Joel Thingvall, Gary Brown as staff. A four-issue subscription cost US$3. An additional dollar bought a club membership I. D. card, six decals, a poster. The membership kit was available separately for US$2.50. The premiere contained a foreword by Lee. Section previewing upcoming Marvel comics. Similar fare appeared in subsequent issues. Steranko, who additionally drew the back cover of issue #1, the cover of #2, incidental interior art during his tenure, was succeeded as editor by Tony Isabella with issue #5. Ed Hannigan was by now credited for production, with Mark Evanier, Jim Salicrup, Duffy Vohland as contributing editors. Scott Edelman took over as editor with #8, Vohland with #12, Chris Claremont with #13, Dave Kraft with #15. While previous issues had listed the company's overall editor-in-chief on the masthead, FOOM with issue #15, was given its own editor-in-chief, beginning with Ralph Macchio, followed two issues by Salicrup.

The back cover of #7 featured one of Ghost Rider co-creator Mike Ploog's earliest sketches of that supernatural motorcyclist, introduced two years earlier. Issue #11 was a Jack Kirby tribute commemorating the legendary comic-book artist's prodigal return to Marvel after a four-year sojourn at rival DC Comics. John Byrne's earliest work at Marvel, a Frankenstein drawing inked by Duffy Vohland, appeared in issue #5's "Fan Art Gallery."It was relaunched in September 2017. Issue #2 presented the first of two double-page spreads of fan art submitted for the character-design contest announced in issue #1. Included were the characters "Absorba-Man" by future comics artist Steve Rude, "Novaton" by future Marvel art director and editor Mariano Nicieza and Borgo by Kazimieras G. Prapuolenis. Issue #3 included "Heros" by future Marvel Age editor Steve Saffel; the winner, announced that issue, was Michael A. Barreiro of Pittsburgh, for the supervillain "Humus Sapiens". Several dozen honorable mentions included future The X-Files comic-book writer Stefan Petrucha, listed among those under "Best Presentation".

Despite the contest's announced prize, Humus Sapiens was never used in a Marvel comic at the time. Creator Barreiro inquired at Marvel about the character, but received no response. Comics columnist Fred Hembeck in 1979 wrote in the magazine Buyer's Guide to Comic Fandom about the contest and Humus Sapiens, but nothing came of it; the character appeared 28 years in Thunderbolts #55, as the fictional mutant Humus Sapien. Barreiro grew up to become a carpenter and a freelance artist living in the Carrick neighborhood, did a small amount of work for Marvel and Dark Horse Comics; the Amazing World of DC Comics Marvel Age Pizzazz Ruby, Sam, ed.
